BEIRUT, Lebanon - The family of a Lebanese-born U.S. Marine held hostage in Iraq said it was confident Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun had been freed and was well, though relatives have not heard directly from him, his brother said Tuesday.

Hours later, a Lebanese government official said the kidnappers released Hassoun after he pledged he would not return to the U.S. military. The official, who spoke on customary condition of anonymity, said Hassoun's whereabouts were unknown.
"We have received reliable information the guy is free," Sami Hassoun told The Associated Press from the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, where the Marine has family.


Though he had not spoken with his brother, who was serving as a translator with the U.S. Marines in Iraq when he went missing June 20, Sami Hassoun said "we received a sign from my brother reassuring us."

Desert your country? or Get your head cut off? That's a tough one...

look i "love" my country as much as the next person, but if i was being asked to pledge allegiance to Iraq and live or pledge allegiance to America and lose my head, id say "Praise Allah". Gotta look out for myself. and if I get called a traitor and what not, I can change my name and move to Tennessee. Its the American way.

Have to agree. It's about the worse choice a person could be forced to make, their country or their life...

There's a good use for Tennessee.
